Commitment is important if you are dedicated to seeing something through. Think about a task you had to complete, but didn’t really feel dedicated to. Unfortunately, that is how I see things in my food allergy elimination “diet”. It isn’t a diet, it is a way of life. I have made some progress, but I won’t truly see results until I decide to commit myself to this process and stop giving in to what I want instead of what’s good for me. I love food. I am not afraid to try new food; however, not all food agrees with me now. I have this crazy mindset that you only live once, and developing food allergies as an adult was not part of the plan. Ha. Anyway, I am still learning to adjust.
I am renewing my commitment to take better care of myself this week. I am going to do the things on the list I keep “forgetting” I was going to do. Gym buddy, that means you. Yoga buddies are needed. How can you help yourself stay committed to your task? Make sticky notes. Get a buddy. Send a reminder to yourself. Put it on your calendar. Make a to-do list, and a date to get it done. Whatever the task is at hand, do it and you will feel better once you do. Stop ignoring it…it only makes it worse. Trust me.
“Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not?” ~LeBron James
